In my research for my novel, Counterfeit Honor, I ran across this link that chronicled the 1950’s Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. Jefferson County borders Denver County.
This report highlights the highs and lows of Sheriff Enlow’s career. It includes several murders, a plane crash, and a jail break. Sheriff Enlow took training sponsored by the FBI and that no doubt helped the general public opinion of him for a while. It seemed like he turned an eye to the gambling problem with slot machines. Later Sheriff Enlow served time for tax evasion.
